Introduction:

The blue dude with the attitude is back with an updated look at the games that started it all! Sonic Origins is a collection of the games from the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive/Sega CD that detail the first events involving Sonic and his battle against the villainous Dr. "Eggman" Robotnik. This collection contains Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, and Sonic & Knuckles (Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles have been combined into 1 title just as you could do with them originally to create the full experience and story). These games can be played in their original form or can be played in Anniversary Mode where you have infinite lives and can earn coins to be spent on the in-game museum to view things like music, art, and movies. As for trophies, you are looking at a very easy list that has you completing each game along with a handful of missions in the Mission Mode. This collection is nice for anyone who never got to play the original games, or for a fan who simply wishes to access these games on a modern console.

Walkthrough:

Step 1: Play through each game


For this step, you are simply going to play through all the games in the collection. Personally, I recommend the Story Mode as it ties all the games together in chronological order according to the series timeline, and it is done through Anniversary Mode which will get you coins for the museum and infinite lives to prevent game overs. You do not need to get the true endings for each game by obtaining the Chaos Emeralds/Super Emeralds/Time Stones, but you will need to obtain them for either Sonic the Hedgehog 2 or Sonic the Hedgehog 3 to obtain Super Sonic. After completing each game, you will be done with this step.

Step 2: Complete 10 Missions with an S rank for each game

For this step, you only need to S rank 10 missions for each title in the collection. There are more, but you only need 10 in order to receive each respective trophy. The missions are very simple and the S rank requirements are also easy to fulfill. You already played through every game so you should be somewhat familiar with controls, stage layouts, and enemies. If you do not get an S rank, you can just replay the mission until you do. The missions vary from completing levels in a time limit to defeating enemies to performing specific tasks in level sections. They are not difficult by any means, so you should have no trouble with this.

Step 3: Museum

For this step, you just need to purchase 30 art pieces, 10 songs, and 6 movies from the premium section in the museum. Since you have done Story Mode and a bunch of missions, you should have mroe than enough coins to purchase what you need from the museum. Once you purchase the required items for each trophy, make sure you view any of them to obtain Museum Time. After that, you are done with this step.

Step 4: Cleanup

This step is here in case you are missing any miscellaneous trophies like defeating a certain number of enemies or performing a specific task. The majority of trophies should have been unlocked as you played through the games, so you should have little to do here. You can access any of the titles at any time, so cleanup should be simple. Once you finish cleaning up what you are missing, you will have your new platinum to enjoy!

  • Get all the trophies

    Congratulations! You put a stop to Robotnik's plans several times over, saved South Island, saved Little Planet, saved Angel Island, and recovered the Master Emerald! Phew. You really can do anything!
  • Watch the opening for Sonic the Hedgehog

    Simply start up the first Sonic the Hedgehog game in either Classic or Anniversary Mode and watch the opening cutscene.
  • Watch the opening for Sonic CD

    Simply start up Sonic CD in either Classic or Anniversary Mode and watch the opening cutscene.

  • Watch the opening for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles

    Simply start up Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles in either Classic or Anniversary Mode and watch the opening cutscene.
  • Defeat 10 Moto Bugs in Sonic the Hedgehog

    Moto Bugs are the one-wheel, ladybug looking enemies found in Green Hill Zone. For this trophy you must defeat 10 of them. They only count AFTER finishing the act, so make sure you complete the act after defeating the 10th one. This carries over between playthroughs, so if you do not get it initially just restart the game and continue defeating Moto Bugs until you have 10, then finish the act.
  • Use Air Bubbles in Sonic the Hedgehog

    You will encounter Air Bubbles starting in Labyrinth Zone. Air bubbles comes from pockets of air you find on the ground while underwater. Whenever you are about to drown and the countdown starts, you can grab an air bubble that comes from an air pocket underwater to refresh your air supply while underwater so you don't die. This will come naturally as you will need to use air bubbles to stay alive for some of the extended underwater sections found throughout the game.
  • Travel to the past or future in Sonic CD

    Throughout the zones you will find signs for Future and Past. After passing a sign, if you can maintain a fast enough speed for long enough, you will travel through time. You will know you are going fast enough if large sparks start coming out from behind you. This will likely come naturally as many levels are designed so you will pass through a sign and maintain a fast speed to inevitably travel through time.
  • Win a race against Metal Sonic in Sonic CD

    In Stardust Speedway Act 2, you will encounter Metal Sonic towards the end of the level. When you meet him, he will challenge you to a race. You must make it to the room at the end before he does so you do not get locked out and killed by Robotnik who is firing a laser that will hit anyone who falls behind.. While you are racing, make sure to watch out for Metal Sonic's attacks since he will either charge forward or sit still while electrifying himself. Get to the finish before Metal Sonic to rescue Amy and have Robotnik accidentally destroy Metal Sonic, and this trophy is yours.
  • Defeat 10 Stingers in Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    Stingers, or Buzzers, are the bee-looking enemies found in Emerald Hill Zone. For this trophy you must defeat 10 of them. They only count AFTER finishing the act, so make sure you complete the act after defeating the 10th one. This carries over between playthroughs, so if you do not get it initially just restart the game and continue defeating Stingers/Buzzers until you have 10, then finish the act.
  • Get the jackpot in Sonic the Hedgehog 2's Casino Night Zone

    Throughout Casino Night Zone you may find large slot machines that you can enter for a chance to win rings. For this trophy, you must hit the jackpot on any machine. The best way to go about this is in Act 2. Towards the beginning of the stage, you will encounter a slot machine with a flipper to the bottom right of it. You can easily use this flipper to launch yourself into the slot machine for repetitive chances at this. The game does not have terrible rates, so it should not take too many attempts to obtain this trophy. Just continue to use the machine until you hit the jackpot for 100 rings.
  • Defeat 10 Rhinobots in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles

    Rhinobots are the one-wheeled rhinoceros looking enemies found in Angel Island Zone. For this trophy you must defeat 10 of them. They only count AFTER finish the act, so make sure you complete the act after defeating the 10th one. This carries over between playthroughs, so if you do not get it initially just restart the game and continue defeating Rhinobots until you have 10, then finish the act.
  • Collect 3 types of Shields in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles

    There are 3 shield types you can find in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. The Fire Shield which allows you to launch yourself forward as a ball of flame, the Water Shield which allows you to bounce and provides infinite air while underwater, and the Electric Shield which attracts nearby rings toward you and allows you to perform a double jump. These shields are found numerous times throughout the game so you should have no trouble obtaining this trophy naturally as you play through the game. Once you have collected each shield type at least once, you will earn this.
  • Collect a total of 1000 Rings

    This will come naturally since rings are abundantly found throughout all of the games here. This is shared across games and playthroughs so simply keep playing until you have collected 1000 rings. If you are playing Story Mode, you'll likely get this while still in Sonic the Hedgehog or probably early in Sonic CD.
  • Defeat 30 enemies with the Spin Dash

    The Spin Dash is Sonic's classic move that allows you to spin in place and gain speed by holding dpad_down.png and pressing cross.png rapidly, then launch yourself by releasing dpad_down.png. You can also just press dpad_down.png while running to go into a spin dash. Most enemies can be defeated by by going through them with a Spin Dash unless they have some kind of spike protection. Spin Dashing is one of the most common ways to defeat enemies in Sonic games so you will likely get this naturally as you play through the games.
  • Defeat a total of 50 enemies

    Enemies are plentiful throughout all Sonic games and you defeat many of them as you progress through the games, so this will also come naturally as you play.
  • View a Premium Collection item from the Museum

    You can use coins gained from Anniversary Mode and Missions to purchase premium collection items from the museum. After purchasing one, simply view it to obtain this trophy.
  • Clear 1 Mission

    Missions are small, objective-based levels you can play where you are given a section of a level from the original game and must peform a specific task. For this trophy, simply complete 1 mission from any game.
  • Glide as Knuckles

    Knuckles can glide by holding cross.png after jumping. Simply do this once at any point to obtain this trophy. There is a Mission that requires Knuckles to defeat enemies by gliding through them, so you can get this naturally as you try to S rank missions.
  • Fly as Tails

    Tails is able to fly by continusously pressing cross.png after jumping. Simply do this once at any point to obtain this trophy. There is a Mission that requires Tails to fly and obtain rings, so you can get this naturally as you try to S rank missions.
  • Try the Boss Rush from any of the titles

    This collection features a boss rush mode for every title where you can battle the bosses of a game consectuively. You will immediately gain this trophy upon starting the mode in any game. You do not even need to complete the boss rush itself.
  • Clear 10 Sonic the Hedgehog Missions with an S rank

    For this trophy you must obtain an S rank on at least 10 missions for Sonic the Hedgehog. These missions are simple and should be easily doable if you have decent knowledge of the game and enemies. You can also retry missions to attempt to get better ranks, so this should not be difficult. There are more than 10 missions for each title, but for the trophies, you only need to S rank 10 of them.
  • Clear 10 Sonic CD Missions with an S rank

    For this trophy you must obtain an S rank on at least 10 missions for Sonic CD. These missions are simple and should be easily doable if you have decent knowledge of the game and enemies. You can also retry missions to attempt to get better ranks, so this should not be difficult. There are more than 10 missions for each title, but for the trophies, you only need to S rank 10 of them.
  • Clear 10 Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Missions with an S rank

    For this trophy you must obtain an S rank on at least 10 missions for Sonic the Hedgehog 2. These missions are simple and should be easily doable if you have decent knowledge of the game and enemies. You can also retry missions to attempt to get better ranks, so this should not be difficult. There are more than 10 missions for each title, but for the trophies, you only need to S rank 10 of them.
  • Clear 10 Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles Missions with an S rank

    For this trophy you must obtain an S rank on at least 10 missions for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. These missions are simple and should be easily doable if you have decent knowledge of the game and enemies. You can also retry missions to attempt to get better ranks, so this should not be difficult. There are more than 10 missions for each title, but for the trophies, you only need to S rank 10 of them.
  • Play Mirror Mode

    Once you complete a game, you will unlock Mirror Mode for that game where you will be able to play each leve backwards. To obtain this, just unlock Mirror Mode by beating any of the games then complete a single act while in Mirror Mode.
  • Unlock 6 movie collection items with Coins

    I suggest going for the trophies related to getting S ranks in missions before doing this. This is because completing Missions and playing through the games in Anniversary mode will reward coins which you can spend at the museum. If you complete each game in Anniversary Mode and S rank 10 missions from each game, you will have way more than enough coins to obtain this. Just buy 6 premium movie items to obtain this.
  • Unlock 10 sound collection items with Coins

    I suggest going for the trophies related to getting S ranks in missions before doing this. This is because completing Missions and playing through the games in Anniversary mode will reward coins which you can spend at the museum. If you complete each game in Anniversary Mode and S rank 10 missions from each game, you will have way more than enough coins to obtain this. Just buy 10 premium sound items to obtain this.
  • Unlock 30 art collection items with Coins

    I suggest going for the trophies related to getting S ranks in missions before doing this. This is because completing Missions and playing through the games in Anniversary mode will reward coins which you can spend at the museum. If you complete each game in Anniversary Mode and S rank 10 missions from each game, you will have way more than enough coins to obtain this. Just buy 30 premium art items to obtain this.
  • Defeat a total of 200 enemies

    This is tracked across all games and playthroughs. If you are playing through all titles in the collection, this will come naturally since enemies are plentiful throughout all of the games and you'll defeat them naturally as you progress.
  • Turn into Super Sonic

    This trophy can be earned in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 or Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Sonic the Hedgehog did not feature Super Sonic and Sonic CD has the Time Stones instead of Chaos Emeralds which only guarantee a Good Future and allow you to obtain the true ending as opposed to letting you turn into Super Sonic.This will require the most out of you compared to most of the trophy list since you will have to go out of your way to collect all of the Chaos Emeralds in either Sonic the Hedgehog 2 or 3. There are 7 Chaos Emeralds to be collected in either title, and you obtain a Chaos Emerald after successfully completing a Special Stage. I recommend doing this trophy in Anniversary Mode because Anniversary Mode allows you to obtain coins which you can spend to replay Special Stages if you happen to fail.

    In Sonic the Hedgehog 2, you can access a Special Stage by passing through a Star Post with 50 rings then jumping into the circle of stars. You will enter a half pipe where you and Tails must collect a specific amount of rings before passing a checkpoint. Each stage consists of 3 checkpoints you must pass before you can obtain the Chaos Emerald. Be careful because there are bombs that make you or Tails drop rings if you run into them. Remember that you can also hold dpad_left.png or dpad_right.png to do a complete rotation around the pipe. You will need to do this eventually since some stages put rings on the top part of the pipe. You can also jump by pressing cross.png. I feel like these Special Stages are harder than Sonic the Hedgehog 3, but you have the opportunity to obtain all of the Chaos Emeralds faster since there are multiple checkpoints in an act. If you know what you are doing, you can have this trophy as early as Chemical Plant Zone or Aquatic Ruin Zone.

    In Sonic the Hedgehog 3, you can access a Special Stage by finding and entering a giant ring. There are 2 giant rings in every act of the game. This means you can find all 7 Chaos Emeralds before completing Hydrocity Zone. When entering a Special Stage, you will arrive in a 3D area full of spheres. The goal is to collect all of the Blue Spheres in the area without touching a Red Sphere. Collecting a Blue Sphere will turn it into a Red Sphere. However, if there are multiple Blue Spheres grouped together, you can collect all of the ones along the outside to turn them into rings. This is a great strategy for reducing the amount of Red Spheres in the area since most of the time you will be wandering and revisiting sections while trying to find all the Blue Spheres. Remember that you can also jump by pressing cross.png.

    After collecting all 7 Chaos Emeralds, you may turn into Super Sonic by collecting at least 50 rings then jumping and pressing triangle.png. Super Sonic has incredibly fast speed, jumps higher, and takes no damage from enemies (though he can still die by getting squished). Being in Super Sonic form will also steadily drain your rings over time so be careful. Just turn into Super Sonic once to immediately obtain this trophy.
